Judge Priest depicting life in Kentucky after the Civil War and Reconstruction Period.
It still shows the stereotypes and prejudices which existed at that time in a somewhat humorous manner.
Based on a story by the noted Kentucky humorist, Irvin S. Cobb, it presents life as one would have imagined it at that time period.

A charming post-civil war period piece.
Makes me wish I could find myself in a belle dress the size of a house with a hat just as big, fan in hand deep in the "Old South" having a Mint Julep with the Judge on the veranda amongst the weeping Willows and Spanish Moss.
I found the items/people in the background as intriguing if not more so than what what was happening in the foreground. Love the old clothes and other accouterments. Really just enchanting and a must watch for a civil war/restoration fan.

One of the best films I've seen in years. I wish I'd known about this movie before.
Will Rogers as Judge Priest could not have been better.
